When I type in a subject that I want to seach in Internet Exployer it saves that subject and if I type the first letter of the subject,it will bring that subject back up again.  I do not want it to auto complete.  I do not want to share what I am serching for  with someone that may use my computer.  How can I stop the auto complete when  searching.
